STRONG Life Podcast ep 287: Wrestling Strength & Conditioning Master Class
Brought to you by SORINEX.
Every year I hear stories from the wrestlers I train during the first 2 weeks of the season. The stories usually sound like this: "We haven't done any wrestling yet, we've just been running through halls and running stairs because the coaches want us to get in shape."
And so, every year when I post my feelings about this, people get overly sensitive and refuse to see the forest from the trees. I explain and break it all down in this Video and Podcast. So, to get a true understanding of why I said what I said, you're gonna have to listen and learn.
Conversing through twitter is not a solid option - it's just a bunch of people shouting their random thoughts without diving into the context of what someone just said.
When training wrestlers, I love the approach of "filling buckets".
What do they do in practice?
What do they do outside of practice?
What do they need to work on to make them a better wrestler?
What is the minimum effective dose?
What needs to be addressed in training to boost the mental aspect, not just the physical aspect?
As a Coach, you must consistently ask yourself; Is this giving the athlete the best results possible with the time we have?
